Such is life
Philistines have entered the gate

Mi tasol olsem blut i kapsait

BuaiMAIKEL DOM

Mi tasol mi buai,
Na stik daga
Na sel kambang wantaim:
Mi tasol olsem blut i kapsait

Mi sting long ai bilong yu,
Mekim tit i bilak
Na sigirapim sik tu:
Mi tasol mekim maus i sua

Mi kam nating long yu,
Ol meri i bilasim mi long sikin
Na danis ikam bungim yu:
Mi mekim olgeta lain i hamamas

Mi save kirapim toktok,
Mi kaikai bilong kastom
Mi stap na kibung i kamap:
Mi kaikai bilong istap wanbel

Na tu, mi ken kirapim tubel,
Mi bikpela hevi bilong siti
Tasol gutpela bilong asples:
Mi stap na yupela stap

Mi tasol mi buai,
Na stik daga
Na sel kambang wantaim:
Mi tasol olsem blut i kapsait

BuaiI am the red, red stain

MICHAEL DOM

I am the betel nut,
The daga stick
And the lime pot:
I am the red, red stain

I am the filthy eyesore,
The stained teeth
And the health hazard:
I am the mouth cancer

I am the free gift,
The girls are garlanded with
And dance to greet:
I am the crowd pleaser

I am the icebreaker,
The nut of kastom
And first act of the kibung:
I am the nut of peace

And, I am the nut of conflict,
The urban curse
And the rural blessing:
I am the lifestyle choice

I am the betel nut,
The daga stick

And the lime pot:
I am the red, red stain
